It's the start of another WC qualifying campaign and hope and enthusiasm are at an all time low. We haven't managed to qualify for a major finals since 1998, and there's no reason to suppose we're going to do any better this time round. The team is full of journeymen and the manager seems sadly out of his depth. Even given that there's no top quality side in our group, I don't think we'll even manage 2nd place and a play off spot. The recent 5-1 pumping from a very average USA side would seem to indicate how low we've sunk. I just hope they go out there and prove me wrong. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/19506110 I'm available to teach sports psychology, give motivational speeches and lecture on the power of positive thinking.
